Salem. Or.. July 1L The dlaoovery of
oil at Pratum. in thla county, has led to
a great deal of Interest therein, and
since the publication of the matter there
have been, a large number of persona
there to examine the well and to secure
samples of the oil. '
A pump was rigged up there today
and put to work taking the water from
the well in -which the oil discovery- had
been made and the developments were
at least satlafylng and almoat surprising.
Mr. D. M. Wataon of Portland, a well
known expert in the discovery of oil
wells and a man well acquainted with
ttfc buslnesa of locating oil fields, ar
rived at Pratum yesterday, Mr. Wat
son said: .
There is oil here,, and lots of It I
have never encountered a - better pros
pect nor a more hopeful one. This oil
Is not 'confined to the present locality,
but is in what is called blanket sands
and probably extends over a considera
ble part of this district." - - .

probably lay, Mr. Watson said he could
not tell - Just at that time, but could

A ease at law to' establish title' to a
certain piece of property In this county,
and in which is Involved an exceedingly
Interesting question waa argued before
Judge Burnett of the first department
of the circuit court yesterday afternoon
and submitted by O. Q. Bingham, for
the plaintiff, and W. M. Kaiser, for the
defendant The case Is that of M. K.
Pogue, plaintiff, vs. N. Btmon, defend
ant, and the Important legal point in
volved is: Whether a purchaser at ex
ecution aler befora-receiving--araherlrr
deed, has an attachable interest in the
rotter Beslg&s. .
The report waa received, at this office
from what seems to be a perfectly re
liable source that Mr Thorns W. Pot
ter, superintendent at the United States
Indian Training school at Chemawa, had
sent his 'resignation aa superintendent
of that institution to. the commissioner
of Indian affairs, and that he would re
turn to Oklahoma, where he has large
personal interests. v
It is said that .Mr. rotter's resigna
tion was offered because of the serious
sickness of a man with whom he has
business Interests in Oklahoma making
It absolutely necessary that Mr. Potter
go - and give - these interests his .. own
personal attention. . i
Mr. Potter came here from North Car
olina, where he was superintendent and
agent of the eastern Cherokee? and
assumed charge of the school here on
November 20. 1895. ' Since that time the
school hss grown and expanded In a
wonderful manner and - Mr. Potter has
had a great deal to do with that growth
and expansion, Mr.. Potter has had over
20 years 'experience in the Indian serv
ice, and has alwaya been counted one of
the moat, capable of all Indian educa
tors. . -

Mrs. White's lecture on "Patriotic
Painters of the West" yesterday after
noon was thrilling and bristled with the
most Intense patriotism. ' She distinctly
made bar audience feel that they were
careless of the budding efforts of Amer
ican artists; and even in Portland that
there wsrt.niany.'who ought tq have better-
eoelal and, financial ; recognition.'
- "There' has yet no great mural
painter arisen in America,", said Mrs.
White, "and I look for one to come from
this coast, Yea, right here from Oregon,
for, you have just the country to pro
duce a great mural painter."

Hswiey- last - n1ght.-an - spoke. -on : the
"Sunshine In Life." Whether the star
la "of nrat magnitude or not Is a mat
ter of dispute on the grounds thla morn
ing. '-.'.!.
The general opinion seems to he that
there has been lust a dash too much of
the "sunshine" this week. Mr. Beau
champ Is not in general appearance
unlike the humorist preacher. McClary.4
who has lust left, but he speaks with
such rapid ltyone"musne bravely on
the alert or the point of his .Joke is
lost and he Is half way. Into another
before one gets his breath
A .deep strain of religious philosophy
governs all hs has to say and he uses
all-his stories to illustrate some 'prin
ciple of good and uptight living.
Ever and again Beauchamp lets the
preacher predominate, and last night he
gave , soma startling statistics, among
other things, saying: "That last year
70,000 divorces were granted n; America
agalnet 20.000 to the rest of the Whole
world combined."
The American home life he held re
sponsible for the great percentage of
crime lit-this country. Some stories of
excruciating horrors the speaker related,
which certainly did not show up the
sunnyside of life. .
